Welcome to gitrecipe doc page
Recipe clones git repository and checkouts to revision, if it is provided in configuration. You can use recipe like this:
[buildout] parts = data [data] recipe = gitrecipe repository = git://example.com/my-git-repo.git rev = origin/redevlop-branch
repository - repository url
ref of rev - git reference wich you want to checkout
rev option leaved for compatibility with
It is better to use ref parameter, because it corresponds Git terminology
Since 0.0.2 recipe do check existing repository while install and update. Repository origin url must be the same as given in rev option. Otherwise repository will be deleted and cloned again.
I've used recipe
zerokspot.recipe.git, but as for me, it too complex and has some disadvantages:
- it does not allow commit from the source folder, default remote is local copy in downloads
- it does not allow to specify the tag or branch of the repository, only revision hash
So I wrote my own git recipe with compatible options. You can choose this or that.
